Anyone got any ideas for long line running tops - that wold cover my generous bum?! I like sweaty betty stuff, but they ride up....
thank you!

Tbh I would think most long tops would ride up if you are running. Just wear a normal length top and let your bum be uncovered.

YY. I have a long top (I think it's a Nike one) which covers my bottom decently when I'm standing still. Halfway down the road it's bunching up around my waist. A large loose t-shirt might work better, maybe.

You could tie a lightweight top around your bum if you're that worried? But honestly, I don't think anyone notices.

Just make sure you can't see your knickers through your running shorts. I failed to do this and was quite mortified to discover that, should anyone have been looking, they could see my spotty knicks quite clearly blush

Could try an oversized racer back vest top with sports bra underneath to give a kind of layered look.

Or like Shodan says,tie another top round your waist.

When I first started I considered a pair of [ these] but find once I get into my run I couldn't really care less. In my area running would be the sport of choice and you find all ages and shapes and nobody bats an eyelid.

Don't tie a top around your waist - it just draws attention to your bum and makes it look bigger. I think bums look smallest in black lycra. Don't worry about trying to cover it up.

I got a really long one from lidl, of all places. Very good. Can wear leggings with impunity.
